Northwest Energy Innovations
NWEI is focused on commercializing cost effective technology for converting the endless power of ocean waves into electricity.
NWEI is focused on the validation of a commercial technology to generate power from ocean waves. We have successfully tested a TRL6 prototype in Oregon in 2012 and are currently planning a Pilot Project to test the WET-NZ technology at the Navy’s Wave Energy Test Site at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. Prior to redeploying the prototype we plan to modify the controls, hydraulics, and the generator to improve energy capture and reduce cost.
